WSSU Freshmen Package Food for Global Stop Hunger Effort
More than 150 freshmen at WSSU, who were still learning their way around campus,volunteered to do something that most had never done before. They packaged food as participants in a Stop Hunger Now "Meal Packaging Service Initiative. " They packaged more than 10,0000 dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals for use to support education programs and save lives in developing countries around the world.
WSSU's 2013 freshman class has partnered with Stop Hunger Now, an international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger since 1998. They set up their assembly line in the Donald J. Reaves Student Activities Center.
The exercise was the Class of 2017's first community volunteer activity before classes began for the 2013 fall semester.
